    To all of you who have been communicating with the commander these past few months thank you for all the support you gave to her. She had a sense of control and belonging by being a part of this group. The Commander lost her battle with cholangiocarcinoma early Wednesday morning on July 30 th. She went peacefully and was comfortable. This is her sister writing this message. Her son Luis is in my care and is doing well under the circumstances. Thanks to all and may God Bless You.

    Barb,
    It is great hearing from you and I am glad you are on the mend. Is your son in one of those growth spurts that mean finding cloths are a nightmare?
    I have been thinking about you, Luis and Peggy often and of course keep you in my prayers. We are all blessed in so many ways, though sometimes it is hard to remember it. Enjoy the summer and take care.

    Thanks to all for caring about me. I continue to have ups and downs (don’t we all) but I am so blessed to be surrounded by a loving family and woncderful friends and neighbors. I hit a very rough spot last week but am on the mend now. Pain is pretty well controlled, my biggest problem now is nausea. It’s tricky trying to balance calorie intake and vomiting. But, my spirit remains strong. My son comes to visit almost every day which brightens my day but I swear he grows taller every day! So, as they say, every day is a blessing so be grateful for each day.

    Hang in there Precious Barb,

    Hospice is not the ‘end’ of a matter…you are right, they are just there for 24 hour care to assist in caring for your needs.
    I hope your ankle heal quickly so you get get around soon.

    Being off chemo, perhaps you can get stronger to enjoy your son:)

    thanks to all. The way I look at things, Hospice isn’t a matter of dying but a matter of controlling my life as long as I can. I am at peace, more so now than I have been in a long while. Stopping chemo was a personal choice but one that I am at peace with. I have 24 hour care because I am pretty much stuck to my bed or a wheel chair. especially since I sprained my ankle trying to go to the bathroom by myself! My pain is tolerable and they provide me with anything I need. The hardest part was realizing that I could no longer care for my son, so he is now living with my sister (his guardian). Fortunately she just lives down the street and I see him almost every day. I am having problems lately with my short term memory, I will be mid sentence and stop, not remembering what the heck I was talking about. It is very frustrating for someone who is as talkative as I am!
    I will still be hanging out on CC.org and will post as often as I can, likewise on my blog.
    Blessings to everyone!

    Barb
